Anne Hathaway is well aware of the "Hathahaters."
In an uncharacteristically candid interview with Harpers Bazaar, the 31-year-actress opened up about the moment she realized just how much the Internet hated her and why she agrees with some of the criticism Plus: She tells her side of the story about that infamous pointy-nipple Oscars dress.
Read on to see all of what she had to say:
Why does everyone hate Anne Hathaway?
While Googling for a Funny or Die video, Hathaway says she came across an article asking, "Why does everyone hate Anne Hathaway?" She immediately felt "punched in the gut," she says. "Shocked and slapped and embarrassed. Even now I can feel the shame... I was in crisis. Now I'd be fine. I really would be. I'd let it roll off my back, but at the time I was still partly [my Les Miserables character] Fantine. I was still identifying with being a victim."
A "rude" Golden Globes acceptance speech
Hathaway's 2013 Globes speech only helped fan the Hathahaters's flame. Accepting the Best Supporting Actress trophy, Hathaway sounded, as she puts it, inauthentic. "[I was] weirdly presentational. One of the things I've been accused of is being inauthentic. And they were right — but not for the reason they thought," she says. "I couldn't tie this moment to what I really wanted to say and that's on me, because Lupita did it," she adds referring to N'yongo's speech for her performance in 12 Years a Slave.Then, she made one of her "most regretted life moments" when she forgot to thank her manager of 15 years, who was battling cancer. So, when the film won, she took the mic. While everyone was still getting onstage, I spoke. I should have gone after everyone else. I own that; it was rude," she says. "People saw that as grabby, I guess. I don't know."
Things only got worse for Hathaway when she was slammed on the 2013 Academy Awards red carpet for her pale pink satin Prada gown that also happened to make her look like she had pointy nipples. While she originally planned on a different dress, when she learned her costar Amanda Seyfried had something similar picked out, she was left with no dress. The morning of the big show, the gown arrived at her house. "I was like, 'Wow! I can do this. It's beautiful. It's appropriate. It's modern. It's minimal.' I look in the mirror, turn to [my husband] Adam, and say, 'It looks like my nipples are hard.' He says, 'You look beautiful. Your nipples look pointy. The red carpet's about to close. We gotta go.'" And that was that. But despite the reviews, when asked about her most daring fashion moment she says, "I f---ing think that pink Oscar dress! Now that you know the back story, that was by far in a way the most daring dress I have ever worn. It maybe didn't look it, but that was it."
